I think that's insulation. They're certainly gonna cover that up.

Reconstructions are a good thing in most cases imo.
There have been buildings in Germnay with hundreds of years of history and culture. Many of those buildings were destroyed in a matter of a few minutes.
Theres nothing wrong with rebuilding them.

Are you sure about the Houses of Parliament. I always thought they were pure neo-gothic, with some old parts incorporated into the new building.

Or are you only talking about the debating chamber of the House of Commons?

Yep. Im quite sure.

a fire in 1834 destroyed much of the old building.

Heres an article:

http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache...truction&hl=de

from the article:

"The magnificent Gothic Revival masterpiece you see today was built between 1840 and 1888, this was the work of Charles Barry who designed the buildings to blend with nearby Westminster Abbey."

But you said that it was a reconstruction, implying that the Houses of Parliament has looked like it does right now for centuries. It was gothic revival just like Vienna's town hall, the Votivkirche, and Hungary's parliament.

Well the point I wanted to make was that a reconstruction project like in dresden has not much to do with disney architecture ( as one forumer stated).

Im not sure how the houses of parliament looked before the destruction ( Im too lazy to look it up now).

The houses of commons though are a reconstruction as youve already stated.

Well, eclecticism/historicism does have a Disneyish side to it. Architects didn't come up with new styles, they just copied various styles that had been out of date for centuries. The Ringstrasse in Vienna is a great example for that where they chose to build, among many other buildings, a parliament in a neo-classicist way (reminiscent of the democracy in old Greece) and a neo-gothic town hall (I guess during that age the councils/mayors etc. were pretty influential, just look at Brussels).

A few good new photos of the development from the website of the Neumarkt Club

They're small but in my opinion impressive photos.

No, it's the "Semperoper" from Dresden.
